Key Ministries - Accepted

STYLE: MOR / Soft Pop
RATING 5 5 5 5 5
LABEL: Independent

Reviewed by Tony Cummings

'Accepted', dealing with the subject of rejection, is of better musical quality than the other Key Ministries recently released, 'Peace' and 'From Fear To Faith', though still a long way from the "radical worship" claimed on the CD sleeve. Instead, a competent set of musos and singers assemble in a studio to do hymns, choruses and some originals (Phil Wield's "Empty Years" and Justin Gibbs' "Wings" stand out) in soft MOR style. Musically, plodding though as with the other tapes the intent here is ministry and Ken Hardy's Scripture readings and narrative will no doubt touch the hearts of many who get to hear this tape/CD. Key Ministries are clearly pioneering an important ministry. It's a shame therefore that the musical dimension of their work is so unadventurous.
